years old, where she grew up. She attended undergraduate and graduate school in Seattle, and
then moved to Bend in 2010 to start the practice with Dr. Cadwell. She loves the community in
Central Oregon—there are always things that she can go out and do with her family, from
watching sports or hiking, to church events or community performances.
Dr. Cadwell and Brianna married in 2005 and have two kiddos: Kyle, age 7, and Maya, age 4.
